How to know dynamically created chekboxes is selected or not
Posted By Vishal Deb on 08 May 2013
Hi All

I am trying to generated the dynamic labels depending on the checked checkboxes which are dynamically created.

My .Net frame is 3.5
Here is code for dynamic checkboxes

System.Windows.Forms.CheckBox[] checkBox = new System.Windows.Forms.CheckBox[bran_count];

            for (int i = 0; i < bran_count; ++i)
                checkBox[i] = new CheckBox();
                checkBox[i].Name = "radio" + Convert.ToString(i);
                checkBox[i].Text = ds2.Tables[0].Rows[i][2].ToString();
                checkBox[i].Location = new System.Drawing.Point(125 * i, 15);
                checkBox[i].CheckStateChanged += new System.EventHandler(CheckBoxCheckedChanged);
        private void CheckBoxCheckedChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
Any guidance is welcome, if possible give some code snippet.

Hi Vishal,

You can register a event for CheckStateChanged and get the Labels of the TextBoxes created. Here I have displayed the Name and State of the Check Box by handling CheckBoxChecked Event.


using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;

namespace Dynamically_created_chekboxes
    public partial class Form1 : Form
        public Form1()

        private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            CheckBox[] chk = new CheckBox[5];

            for (int i = 0; i < 5; i++)
                chk[i] = new CheckBox();
                chk[i].Name = "CheckBox" + i;
                chk[i].Text = "CheckBox " + i;

                chk[i].Location = new Point(100,50 *i);
                chk[i].CheckedChanged += new EventHandler(CheckBoxChecked);

        private void CheckBoxChecked(object sender, EventArgs e)
            CheckBox chk = sender as CheckBox;
            MessageBox.Show(string.Format("{0} is {1}",chk.Name,chk.CheckState),"Check Box State");
